Winslow force he and him companions to give over all their weapons and Phillip had to sign a document saying he had been disloyal. None of Phillip’s warriors were happy for being falsely accused and giving over their weapons. The Wampanoag people were looking for some sort of retaliation but Phillip wanted to keep the peace. In January of 1675 Phillip’s personal secretary warned Winslow of war and 3 months later he was found dead. Three of Phillip’s men were arrested and tried for the murder.
Mary Crow Dog also writes about the intentional killing of her people this in her book, Lakota Woman. She says, “The whites destroyed the tiyospaye, not accidentally, but as a matter of policy. The close-knit clan, set in its old ways, was a stumbling block in the path of the missionary and government agent, its traditions and customs a barrier to what the white man called “progress” and “civilization”” (Crow Dog p.13). Unfortunately for the white man, they failed to succeed at killing off all of the Native people. When a couple hundred thousand were resilient enough to survive this American Holocaust then the whites were faced with a new dilemma, and that was what to do with the
Zapata, on the other hand, was also defeated and was also betrayed. Zapata felt that he never got what he and his people where fighting for, which was land reform. Zapata began his own war against federal troops and also destroyed railroads. Zapata loved by many, was assassinated also by Carazan and his men in an ambush. Zapata was told to come to a meeting and was shot by Caranza’s
One of those things was to take complete control of all the land. They continued to expand their land into areas that were still inhabited by Indians. For a while, Englishmen tried soft tactics, but since Indians were not willing to give up their lands easily, the answer became annihilation. Englishmen’s views concluded that Indians were savages, and they had no right to own or exist on lands that God had given to the white men. Indians throughout were forced to surrender their lands, and although they put up resistance, it was not enough to stop settlers’ expansion and the Indian’s lands were violently taken, and many were killed in the process.
Billy had learned a lot about nature and life and the Indian could see it. He told him not to keep it to himself and share it with others. Billy thought he was going to arrive home and find everything the way he had left it, but the house was empty and there was no trace of his parents or his brother, Boyd. After finding out his parents had been murdered by two Indians he went for his brother and wanted to return to Mexico to find his fathers horses and seek revenge on the Indians who had killed his parents. Billy wants to find peace within him and the only way he can have it is to have revenge on the Indians who killed his parents.
“Fear Hurts” The character that I have chosen to write about is Augustus Sullivan, or Gus, the guide for General Moustache who directs the American soldiers into battle after they hear that the Native Americans had slain 25 white people. Gus, who is a well-respected white man of the United States Army, is someone who Zits tries to immediately control away from Gus’ intentions, but he is unsuccessful (Alexie, p. 85). Instead, he guides the white people, the same people he had grown to hate, into a Native American camp to slaughter his ancestors. He watches as Indian men, women, and children are obliterated by the men he took to their camp, as people are murdered at ferociously close distance. When all hope for any Indian survivors is lost, a “white soldier races towards Bow Boy” and “without stopping, the white soldier reaches down and picks up Bow Boy.
We can see this in source 2, page 38, by the medicine man of the Blackfoot, painted by George Catlin. This has a very negative view on the Sioux Indians because it is showing that they have killed animals and that they don’t care that they wore animal skin over their clothing and do not realise that if they killed animals just for that then their food supply will run out quicker. This source is produced by George Catlin, who is a reliable white US soldier, settler. It is reliable because who it is produced by, as he saw a lot of things that the Sioux Indians did. It is also unreliable because this is a painting of what they were when they were in a ceremony not there everyday life.
It was said that the Navajos were better at stealing animals and the New Mexicans were better at stealing people (159). The New Mexicans and the Indian tribes of the American west went after each other for years which almost lead to war until Colonel Doniphan wrote a treaty of peace between the two groups (190-191). Like the Indians, the Americans didn’t have a strong relationship with the New Mexicans. They didn’t have one because the Americans were siding with the Indians in the almost war they had. Also, the New
John Brown: Hero or Terrorist? Conclusion: John Brown was a slavery fanatic who wanted it abolished, but he went to the extreme of killing people for their ‘opinion’, something everyone is entitled to. In the aftermath of Brown’s actions no change came about for many years, therefore if Brown had proposed his ideas and opinions without violence the outcome would have been the same. Brown had the right motives but used the wrong actions and became a terrorist. Personal Life: John Brown came from a family that hated slavery, this fueled his anti-slavery mindset.When Brown was five, he moved with his family to a log house in a frontier township in Ohio's Western Reserve, a place where native Americans outnumbered the population of whites.
In order to do this, they needed Montezuma to tell his people to cease the war. But, Montezuma refused at first to speak to his people because he was tired of all of the lies from the Spanish. He stated that the Aztec people were already set on not letting the Spanish leave alive. Therefore, the only option for the Spanish was for them to fight to the death. Montezuma was then placed by a battlement of the roof and told his people that if they refrained from the war, the Spanish would leave Mexico.
